getting equal pay or moving ahead is so few women take on science, technology, education and math. i went to school as an engineer in the 80s and was the only woman in the program. ten years later i still don't find any women who become save the engineers the way i did. is there a way to push the younger generation to take those harder courses and break those barriers? >> there is some work to do that and the educational system is stepping up to do that but then you come up against the situation they discovered at yale, that even though women have the same qualifications they are not treated equally. >> we have to encourage women. that is one area in technology and science where women have not made has significant a role as they have in law and medicine and it starts early. it starts in kindergarten where you have to encourage that. i saw the same study but be that as it may women make a lot more money -- [talking over each other] >> in the liberal arts. >> something you want to say? we have time for one more question. >> no, go ahead. the other people talk. >> sandra fluke went to orgasm

[ music ] >> bill: here we go, monday morning, focusing on the one person standing in the way of any fix of the fiscal cliff and that is john boehner. time for him to lead. john boehner ought to go to his caucus and say, hey, they won. we lost. we now look like a bunch of clowns because 98% of americans are going to get a tax cut, a continued tax cut on january 1st unless we stop it. and why should we block that? bill kristol who is as conservative as you can get, former chief of staff for dan quail, publisher of "the weekly standard" weekly on fox news, he said after the election on november 11th, he laid it out there. >> float new ideas. let's have a serious debate. don't scribek scream and yell. it won't kill country if we raise taxes on millionaires. i don't sundays why republicans don't
for education and train science and research. >> any republican who buys this is a fool. republicans have stood for one thing statistically that held them. they are the low tax party. the other guys want to tax to match their reckless spending. if they give it up now in return for nothing, obama wins and high wins big. i understand why the democrats are doing this. they imagine that republicans have no bargaining power today . i say that it is true if republicans resist they will take the blame and that will help democrats in the congress. but obama's never running again. he doesn't care who gets the blame. he is the president and a blame duck. he wants a successful second term. if it starts by going over the cliff it starts with second recession and wrecked second term. >> steve: that's why the president said i would be willing to do anything to get a deal. >> gretchen: it is not a deal. this is what the american public needs to know. this is raising taxos successful people and reducing taxes on the middle class. that is not a deal folks. they will waste your taxpayer dollars and overspend and
of that deal are not mysterious. i don't think this involves rocket science in putting it together. it requires political consensus. i think there are a lot of trial balloons going on on the republican side of the aisle to try to build that consensus, and i think once that happens we're going to get it done. if we have to be here christmas week in order to protect the american public from the fiscal cliff, i'm happy to be here, and so are my colleagues. >> i hope everybody speaks greek because that would be the appropriate language to use the week after christmas. thank you. get it done before christmas. thank you, u.s. congressman lee terry, thank you so much for coming. >>> up next, president obama had mitt romney over for lunch at the white house. do you believe it? i'd love to know what happened in that room. it's the latest edition in the often frosty relationship between the presidential rivals. it was pretty warm for about an hour on election night. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, this next story should surprise no one. the 112th congress is on track to be the least

of couch potatoes out there. this study in the journal of environmental science and technology showed that and average there are 44 different chemicals in the couches that were sampled in different u.s. homes. some of these chemicals are known to be of concern, they've already been banned in babies' clothes, they are believe to be cancer causing in high doses. >> is it from sitting on the couches, breathing in the air, exactly how do you get exposed to it? >> no one has made the connection between what is in the couch, these chemicals and health. but it is known that these chemicals exist in the couch and this study simply described the variation and the main type of chemicals in koups, and the authors of the study say let's try to keep your couches clean and don't save a couch for 15 or 20 years like most people do. jenna: if you have a really nice couch -- you know, doc, i think about our viewers with this. if you watch the news today we are already telling people b be ware of the fiscal cliff, an islamic egypt, a nuclear iran and if you want to sit on your couch this weekend be war
calls this study junk science, designed to scare consumers into purchasing only organic pork. is this a good study? what should consumers take away from it? >> "consumer reports" doesn't give us enough information to fully evaluate their study. but there are some concerns here. they raise concerns about antibiotics being used in animals to promote growth. and they say doing that can raise the risk that have the animals can get resistant infections and pass them along to humans. this doesn't add a lot to that information. >> no question that yersinia does cause food poisoning. this is about properly handling and cooking your pork at the end of the day. >> test ease -- it's easy to prevent. cook your pork well. pork should be at 145 degrees. ground pork to 160. use separate cutting boards for raw meat and other foods. and wash your hands when handling raw meat. >> very important, indeed. dr. richard besser, as always, thank you. george, over to you. >> amy, thank you. >>> we're going to turn, now, to a violent home invasion, that has sparked a federal investigation. fbi and dea

from mars but in reality once we decide what we're going to do we have a science operational working group. we decide what we're going to do and the sol is a martian day. we write the script. we program -- we write the program. that takes about six hours to write. and then it gets sent from the deep space network to mars where the rover picks it up and the rover does all of those operations during that day. it gets that information first thing in the morning and then it is with us all day long. you program an entire day in one sitting. >> i love that name. did you say deep mars network? >> deep space. reporting live from the deep space network. so that's interesting. why do a whole day's worth of instructions at one time? is it more efficient form the machine? does it -- >> there's always this 20-minute light delay. in writing the program writing the scripts it's called, takes a little bit of time to do. we have to get together and review things. doing it in real time is inefficient. the way the rover wo

americans to pay late more so we can still invest in things like education and training and science and research. now i know some of this may sound familiar to you because we talked a lot about this during the campaign. this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was a major debate in the presidential campaign and in congressional campaigns across the country and a clear majority of americans, not just democrats, but also a lot of republicans and a lot of independents, agreed we should have a balanced approach to deficit reduction that doesn't hurt the economy and doesn't hurt middle class families. i'm glad to see, you've been reading the papers lately, that more and more republicans in congress seem to be agreeing with this idea that we should have a balanced approach. so if both parties agree we should not raise taxes on middle class families, let's begin our work with where we agree. the senate's already passed a bill that keeps income taxes from going up on middle class families. democrats in the house are ready to vote for that same bill today. if we can get a few house repu
